Today's SIG Alert!

Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete.  In that day you will ask in my name.  I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.  No, the Father himself loves you.  Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit.  Keep yourselves in God’s love.

  1. Pray that we will understand that as we are one with Christ through the Holy Spirit, we can pray in His name; we can pray in the Spirit of Christ.
  2. Pray for Christ New Testament Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. John Henderson, his wife Dorselene and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for New St. Paul Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Lorenzo Edwards, his wife and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Torrance, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that God will use us as His servants, recognizing all the opportunities He places before us to serve Him, and winning the lost to faith in Jesus Christ.



Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

Prayer reminds us of who is in charge. You don’t take your requests to someone with less authority. You take them to someone who outranks you in the solutions department.  —Ramiah Lazo

Truth without love is brutality, but love without truth is hypocrisy.  —Warren Wiersbe

Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.  —quoted by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, remembered from his childhood of what elderly people said of tragedies.

How can you hit and think at the same time? –Yogi Berra

You play the way you practice.  –Pop Warner

You can’t depend on other people, you have to run your own race.  –Joan Benoit-Samuelson

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.  --Babe Ruth

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.  One is evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.  The other is good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  --Calvin Coolidge

We are all failures--at least, all the best of us are.  --J. M. Barrie

What makes the difference?  Why do some people achieve so much?  ... I know of only one factor that separates those who consistently shine from those who don’t: the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.  --John Maxwell

There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a winner, but there is really only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and not look beyond the failure.  --Soccer player Kyle Rote, Jr.

Never go a certain way because others are going that way.  Find your own way.  --Margaret Thatcher

If humans have the ability to build a small machine capable of beaming information to three satellites and then pinpointing any position on earth within 10 feet, surely the Lord knows where we are.  --Bill L. Taylor

We will find a way or make one.  --Hannibal
